Niranjan is a cybersecurity professional who currently lives and works in the Kingdom of Bahrain. A Mumbaikar by heart and photographer by passion, his inclination towards photography started at an early age, but evolved into a serious passion when he got his first camera.

“I love to capture candid moments within landscapes, cityscapes and street photos that create an emotional connect between the viewer and the photograph. I often experiment by adding natural elements within the frame and create a story. I would love to see myself as a successful photographer and impart my skills and knowledge back to the community” says Niranjan.

Besides photography, Niranjan likes watching crime drama series, travelling and learning about different cultures and people.

What attracted you towards photography? Whose work has influenced you the most?

Nature surprises us with vibrant colours and lights that illuminate our surroundings in the most spectacular ways! I have always been fascinated with how different lighting conditions beautify cities around the world. I love to capture these moments and showcase a different perspective of our world.

I have been inspired by the works of many photographers from around the world, but, the kind of photography that influences me the most, are the works of Nigel Danson, Thomas Heaton, Elia Locardi.

Is it important to undergo professional training to be a photographer? Did you have any when you started out?

Professional training can be helpful to achieve a structured and systematic education, but often, it is the exposure to various locations, weather conditions and practise that makes a better photograph. When I started out with film cameras, there weren’t many resources, hence trial and error was my best teacher!
